I took Calum to the pediatrican today for his 1 year checkup. *sobbing* The little dude is only in the 9th percentile for weight and the 33rd percentile for height, but get this, my kid is SMART! His head is in the 93rd percentile! lol Poor little kid with a big head. So ya, I'm pretty sure his head has to be so big to hold his giant brain. ;) That's what I'm going to tell myself anyway. I don't think his head looks disproportionate, but I could be biased.
In other news, I realized that tomorrow is my sisters birthday. She's going to be the big 2-0! Lucky girl! No other time in your life like the twenties! Unfortunately for her, I kind of forgot that it was her birthday. WHOOPS. Blame the lack of memory on having too many children. Today I pulled out the craft box and whipped together a little something for her.
The lovely model is my daughter, Cailin.
I made one of these for my neice for Christmas, and it took me about 4 hours. The one today only took about 1 hour -not bad. I stole the idea from http://www.bubblynaturecreations.com/2011/02/tuesday-tutorial-petals-and-pearls.html . Today I didn't follow the instructions quite as closely as I did the first time (hence part of the reason why it didn't take me 4 hours). The first one that I made did turn out a little bigger & fuller, but I actually wanted this one to be a tad smaller.
Now hopefully my sister chooses not to read this blog before she gets it...
